I am Sophie Le's Non-Mom...Are you Freakin' Kidding Me?

The Osmonds are hosting a show on NBC to find American's Favorite Mom (click on the link to read about the contest). There are five categories of Moms: The Military mom, The Working mom, The Single mom, The non-mom mom and The COE "Chairman of Everything" mom.

Let me just post NBC's definition of a non-mom for ya:

"Grandparent, stepmom, or mom to adopted children, each one raising and loving a child. A priceless gift for everybody."

Apparently, according to NBC, an adoptive mom is a Non-Mom. I find this extremely distasteful and ridiculous! What idiots.

For the record, stepmoms and grandparents raising their grandchilden qualify as moms too in my book!

My name is Rebecca, and I work with Edelman on behalf of Teleflora’s “America’s Favorite Mom” program. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about this issue. After closer examination, Teleflora recognized how this may have been offensive to moms who have adopted children… moms who are indeed real moms in every sense of the word. This show of insensitivity was in no way intended and Teleflora offers its deepest apology. It was always Teleflora’s intent to salute and celebrate all moms.

Please know that in response to the concerns expressed, Teleflora immediately change the name of the “Non-Mom” category to “Adopting Moms,” which has already been posted at AmericasFavoriteMom.com.

On behalf of Teleflora, I would like to offer my sincerest best wishes to you on this Mother’s Day.
